Dominick Reyes has taken to Instagram to show off the heavily bruised legs he sustained from Jon Jones’ brutal leg kicks in the main event of UFC 247.

Despite coming into the main event at Houston as a betting underdog, ‘The Devastator’ never looked out of his depth whilst sharing the octagon with arguably the greatest fighter of all time.

A back-and-forth encounter ended with the champion having his hand raised, although Reyes gained plenty of admiring fans from the five-round contest for his bravery and ability.

But it seems as though the California-native did not emerge completely unscathed from the bout, showing off the heavy bruising on his shins and calves from Jones’ infamous leg kicks.

Both ‘Bones’ and Reyes were handed 31-day medical suspensions from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation for his exploits in the Toyota Centre.

Although some fans branded the unanimous judges scores of 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 a ‘robbery’, Reyes insists he knows he won the fight and vowed to get his revenge.

“I feel good about what I went out there and did,” he told MMA Fighting. “No matter what the judges say, I went out there and I won that fight. But I don’t have a belt and that’s the reality of the situation.

“The reality of the situation is that he’s still the champ. I’ve got to get better. I’ve got to try to get this rematch going and I’ve got to finish him next time.

“I’m not just buying into the hype because immediately after the fight, my post-fight interview, I said I won 3-2.

“I’ll stick by that until the end. There’s nobody that can convince me otherwise. I was in there with him.

“But f*** I can’t reverse what the judges did or say. It really sucks. It’s disappointing, but like I said, I’m proud of what I did.

“If you’re going to lose, that’s probably the best way you could possibly lose. It happened to be a loss to Jon Jones, and it was the most controversial decision this year or last year. It is what it is.”
